i love meeting new crows.
they've heard the stories about me, who leaves peanuts and never harms a crow, and so they swoop down to the ground thinking they know the deal. breadlady gives peanuts when she sees you, right?
and then she SEES YOU and you're a tiny black bird only so much larger than this giant's hand, and its eyes are TRACKING YOU, its TEETH are SHOWING. the crow thinks OH MY GOD, AM I GOING TO DIE
so they back off to about thirteen feet and i toss them a peanut
@garbados some day I will actually get my shit together enough to have unsalted peanuts on me at all times and I can start negotiating amicable relations with the crows on our block.
I think they have mostly forgiven me for having our trees trimmed two years ago...mostly. (They stopped yelling at me on sight, anyway.)
